Home flowers April Tree

I can’t believe this is my fourth tree picture this year, where on earth has the last three months gone to. That’s a quarter of the year gone already!!! This month sees a big change in the tree although it is hard to see from this photo as my neighbour’s conifers spoil the view a bit. I have to say I’m not fond of conifers, I much prefer the trees that are natural to this country.
This morning we have a grey sky which is the first time this has happened since I began photographing the sycamore tree on the 1st of each month.

Close up you can see how the buds are now bursting open and unfurling their new fresh little leaves, the good weather of late has certainly helped them along.

The blossom on the cherry tree is about to open too! The cherry tree was way behind the sycamore in coming to life but it seems to have caught up and overtaken it now!

If last week it was all about purple and yellow in the garden, this week is all about red and pink.

My first tulip opened up this week and it won’t be long until I have a few more.

Well as we are now into April by my reasoning it is now Easter and if it’s now Easter then it’s time we had some more rabbits around here!!

This little beauty was sent to me by my lovely bloggy friend Jill, isn’t she gorgeous. 🙂 Thanks Jill, I love her! You’ll probably see a few more bunnies sneaking into blog posts over the next few weeks!

Thanks as always for popping in to see me this week!
Happy April and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Can’t believe it is April already – how did that happen??? Miserable here too today, grey and dull, bring back the sun! It is lovely though to see new leaves and buds appearing on the trees all around. Your little hanging bunny is gorgoeus, I need to do a little Easter decoration around here I think too! Have a great weekend, Jenny xxx

Lovely images full of fresh, new growth.

It’s really interesting to see how the seasons are pushing forward in other parts of the country. Our cherry tree is way behind yours, no sign of life yet despite being south facing but the sycamores here seem to be at a similar stage.
Love that flowery fabric bunny!

Love all the spring growth in the garden – and it’s lovely to see your tree changing each month. Such a cute little pink bunny too!

I know the past three months seem to have flown – but I still remember the dark days of January and February. And now it really is Spring – wonderful pictures as ever Vivienne.

After we got through Jan-Feb it’s been very quick! I love your spring-images, Viv, and all about pink suits me perfectly 🙂 And I love the bunny too!

Happy, sunny and flower-filled weekend to you, Viv!

Nice cheery pictures and yes, April really is your kind of month with all the bunnies. All the growth is happening nice and quickly now over here as well, won’t be long before the lawn mower comes out. Love the Orla bag, must see if they still have any, but I doubt it.

Great to see the new leaves unfurling on your tree Vivienne. I agree I am not a fan of large conifers either, they just seem to take over and block the light! Everything is springing into action in the garden now and the trees are greening up nicely.
April already, time really does fly when you’re having fun. Have a sunny weekend,

Likewise, I also have a cherry tree on my front lawn that is nowhere near flowering yet so some catching up to do there! Not that we ever get to eat any of the cherries from it though – the birds are far too quick at eating them – blink and you miss the cherries!!

Good Friday evening to you Vivienne! We are just back from our last “trundle” for the day and thought I would see what you were up to:0)
What a treat! I could just eat up your photos, what a joy to the eye and happiness to the soul to see. Thank You for sharing them with us. Have a lovely weekend, From Val xxx and lick lick from Bella :0)

Amanda April 1, 2011 - 7:52 pm

Oh What cheery pictures to brighten my snow filled day – Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful flowers!

val April 1, 2011 - 10:47 pm

Hi Vivienne …. it’s me again! Thanks for stopping by, I just wondered ….. can you crochet hearts? I haven’t a clue how to …. but just wondered. :0)
have a really creative and wonderful weekend,
love Val and Bella xx

I’m not a huge fan of conifers either. Unfortunately, they are VERY natural to my “neck of the wood”. Thanks for the compliments Vivienne! I really appreciate them 🙂

Great flower photos, and brilliant close ups of your trees.
Where did March go??!!
We have the blustery March winds here today, but am pleased to tell you that my tomato seeds are finally showing signs of life Vivienne! There are quite a few little white hooky bits unfurling this morning despite the dullness!
Thanks for all your advice!!!
Love that cute little corduroy bunny!!
